3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Draught at King William IV, Leyton, London, 22 Nov 2012) Hazy red colour with foamy, white head. Fruity, sour nose with notes of cherries, red fruit and a fairly fresh acidity. Fruity, tart taste with cherries, red fruit and a dry, fresh acidity in the finish. Light body, quite dry and tart. Low bitterness. A bit weird, but quite drinkable and refreshing. Nice one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slightly above 1/3 of a pint draft @ Brewdog as part of a sampler. Very bright lovely cherry red, only some fungus looking slits for head. Nose is lightly acidic sour, almost medicinal sourness, red chewy candy, some sewage water, lacto and light gummy beers. Taste is a light cherry sourness mixed with some lemon, light acidity mixed sewage water, light lactic leading up to a bitter finish, floral, herbal, candy. Lighter carb. slightly sticky. Okay but not exactly what it should be.

Keg @ The Cock Tavern. The pour’s medium hazy red with a tiny white head. The nose is sharp acetic lemon juice, bright sugar, soft fruit and malevolent buggy aromas. The taste is very tart, sour cherry and lemon rind. Hints of sweet sugar and marshmallow. Pissy wheat tang on the finish. Light body, refreshing. Overall, nice, if basic.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Brewdog Shoreditch. It pours a clear light ruby colour with virtually no head and only a thin ring of pinkish bubbles on the side of the glass. Aroma is extremely vinegarish, almost in Rodenbach style but in a bad way. Too harsh at the beginning. As the base beer, though, this ones opens up after some time and becomes more fruity and pleasant in the nose as well. Taste is a bit bland with good acidity, not overpowering as the base beer, and some red berry notes. But no depth of flavors in this one. Body is thin with good carbonation. Overall, decent but lacks balance and complexity.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2016 Traditional ale like. Some yeast, lots of wood. Very dry, maybe a bit too subtle sour. Will developed, not really to cherry like, but it sure adds character. Great woody brew. (15cl pour at the sour beer tasting event at M-Cafe Leuven)

bright red, small head. Cherry aroma is great. clean, fruity, very fresh aroma with a bit of wheat. Oh, this is nice. more than just sour, you get a straight up cherry beer, good mat backbone to balance things out. really enjoyable.
